This apartment has everything that you could possibly need, from the moment we arrived it felt like home. It is as the description says as well as the photographs in fact it even better. From booking to leaving everything was very professional, Clive thank you for the recommendations. The location is the best in Alvor no need to drive, walk across to harbour or straight into the town but still very quite day & evening. We Spent relaxing hours around the lovely pool with your own sun beds & brolly, couldn't have asked for more. Trina and Gary who look after the apartment were very friendly & accommodating. First time in Alvor I can't say how highly I'd recommend it, it has everything for all different groups. We were sorry to leave and would Absolutely return to this apartment & Alvor

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment was perfectly situated, very comfortable and well-maintained with everything you could possibly need for your holiday.

The pool was excellent. There was plenty of room round the poolside, with comfortable loungers and we saw the sun all day.

Gary, who looks after the apartment, was most helpful, on the odd occasion that we contacted him, he got back to us straight away. He arranged our airport transfers perfectly.

We loved Alvor, the beach, fantastic restaurants and such friendly people everywhere. We were also pleasantly surprised at how far our Euros went!

It was a pleasure to deal with Clive and Pamela, the owners- who also contacted us without delay from the outset.

We had a fantastic holiday and would certainly stay at this apartment again.

Best location in Alvor

  • 3 of 5

First of all, in my opinion this is the best location in Alvor, right by the harbour, right by the town and a short walk to the beach.

The grounds and pool area are nicely planted, well laid out and kept very clean and tidy.

The complex is gated, with key access only, and the apartment itself is very secure, with solid steel shutters to the windows and patio doors.

The apartment is pretty much as described, the kitchen is very well equipped with every appliance you could possibly want.

The lounge area is well furnished, and although we didn't use any, is equipped with and extensive range of AV equipment, pus free reliable wi-fi.

There were a few small things which spoilt an otherwise very nice apartment.

Some of the tiling, particularly in the bathroom, looked a little the worse for wear, as did some of the floor tiles. There was a rather odd arrangement in the bedroom. A large free-standing headboard leans against the wall, covering one of the light switches, so that if you leaned against it, it would switch the light off or on!

It also covered any electrical sockets, so there was only one available in a corner.

The water heater proved a little temperamental, cutting out in the middle of a shower a couple of times, and we never really got to grips with the air-conditioning, though when we were there we didn't really need it very much.

The biggest disappointment for us, was the lack of any really comfortable lounger style seating on the patio, but all these gripes are fairly minor.

Would I stay there again? If I was to go back to Alvor, I would definitely try to book an apartment in Clube Alvor Ria, and depending on what else was available, would consider this one again.
